Pakistan ex-PM Imran Khan sentenced to 10 years in prison in cipher case

Khan’s party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf called the case a sham with no access to media or public, and said they'll challenge the verdict in a higher court.

Pakistan ex-PM Imran Khan sentenced to 10 years in prison in cipher case

Former Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan and former foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi were on Tuesday sentenced to 10 years each in prison in the cipher case.

The decision was announced by special court Judge Abul Hasnat Zulqarnain during the hearing of the case held at the Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi.

Khan’s party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) confirmed the development by saying that it was a “sham case with no access to media or public.”

“Legal team will challenge the decision in a higher court and hopefully will get this sentence suspended, given the poor proceedings of a case when Islamabad High Court had clearly annuled proceedings twice, ordered access to media and public but on the contrary, access of legal team was denied, and decision reached in a haste,” the party said in a message.

The cipher case pertains to a piece of paper, purported to be a diplomatic cable -- the cipher -- that Khan had waved at a public rally on March 27, 2022, and naming the US, had claimed that it was ‘evidence’ of an “international conspiracy” to topple his government.
